tweeya thuya wood burl grain

We love thuya wood and here's why. Not only is it's colour extremely unique, but it has a burr grain which is like no other wood, despite being a member of the cedar family.

It has a beautiful pine-scented aroma that adds to its attraction, it is an exotic wood that is exclusively grown in Morocco, northwest Africa. The people living here earn their income from either fishing or selling thuya wood. It has so much character that it can form as a standalone ornamental piece.

This rare conifer tree is harvested not by its trunk or branches but from the actual roots and new growth. They are around 70 years old before they are cut. Even today oil is extracted and is used in aromatherapy.

It can be used to make any type of small or large furniture such as coasters, boxes, business card holders, pen pots, dominoes, magazines stands, etc. With thuya wood the possibilities are endless and it will always make a unique gift!

In the past we have had a set of six round Moroccan thuya wood coasters and they look absolutely stunning on a coffee table and the aroma is extremely welcoming.

@Kelley – Here is how to care for Thuya wood. To remove dust, dip a clean cloth in warm soapy water, wring it out until slightly damp then wipe the wood with the cloth. Afterwards, get another cloth and dry the wood. A general rule is that even wood with an oil or wax finish will need to be oiled about once per year to prevent the risk of it cracking. There are many suitable oils that you could use but we would recommend mineral oil, olive oil or linseed oil.


How do I properly care for my carved thuya wood box? Thank you.
